If you opened this page you are a curious one. Nice to meet you 🙏🏼
Shortly about me.
Born and raised in the Republic of Moldova, in a family of simple villagers. My parents lived, and still do, a very humble life as a medical assistant and construction worker in Bascalia. My childhood was mostly about farm work and running around (barefoot during summers).
Early on, I believed that formal education is the key to the future, so I made sure to be a top student through high school and college. But, once I have discovered AIESEC and adopted a life-learning philosophy, I dropped out of university and ventured into tech startups. AIESEC was the seed for my current career in Learning & Development field.
I spent about 10 years building tech ventures and contributing to various social enterprises across Austria, Netherlands, India, France, USA, and China.
In 2016 I decided to get 💯 into L&D and pursued a Master Degree in Learning Sciences and Education Technology at Learning Planet Institute [University of Paris]. After my studies I stayed at the Institute and worked for almost 3 years on setting up a global network dedicated to the reform of education in line with UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Currently living and working in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Learning to be a good parent and enjoy life next to the awesome Ana Negara.
On the side, doubling in podcasting, running, doodling and occasionally learning some random skills that keep my curiosity engaged.
